Just another manic Monday

Hope everyone had an amazing weekend! It was sunny and warm here and I enjoyed every second of it. What I didn’t care for was the dang time change!! Anyone struggling because of the lost hour?
I know I am. I overslept today, so Vicious was late for school. Since she is so anal about being on time and things being perfect, this did not go over well. *ugh* On the bright side, since it is Monday, Thing 2 has school so I am now able to relax for a bit.

This describes my day, haha 🙂

Now on to what’s important…Knitting
I have a horrible case of start-itis lately. I have so many projects that I have started, half way completed, then started something else. I was able to finish one hat this weekend and deliver it to it’s forever home.

Next up I started another pair of socks. I am attempting to teach myself toe-up magic loop and after several tries I think I finally have the hang of it.

Just the toe right now but it is going pretty quickly.
Now you may be asking, “what happened to the last pair of socks you were making?” I didn’t like them and so I ripped them out and started these. The issue I had with my last pair of toe up socks was they had holes in them. I did Judy’s magic cast on and a wedge toe. To do the wedge toe you KFB into the first and last stitch on each needle. Well, this made holes in my sock no matter how tight I tried to knit. So, now I am using the M1 method in between the first and second stitch on each needle and the last two stitches on every needle. Now, no holes and a much better shape for the toe.

I also started a shirt for Vicious. I went into my LYS and saw a sample of the prettiest pullover and knew that I had to make it. It is the Berry Blossom Pullover from Universal Yarn. It is in the new Ebook Bamboo Pop kids. You can purchase it from the Universal Yarn site.

That’s all knitters and friends. Hope you all enjoy your week! Here’s a little diddyy to get you through the day 🙂

  1. That sweater is beautiful! I can’t wait to see yours when it’s done.
    You are very brave. Toe-up magic-loop sound so intimidating!! Good luck! Can’t wait to hear how you like it!
    And the socks you ripped out, where those the ones with the STH?

    1. Yes they were. I plan to use the same heel for these. I loved that heel technique but the toe I wasn’t a fan of. I plan to post all my modifications once I find a method I really like.
      Loving the magic loop for socks!!
